The Voice finalist Christina Grimmie and The X Factor finalist Rachel Crow will each take home an award in the ninth annual Libby Awards from peta2, PETA’s youth division.

“Today’s young people are connected and engaged with causes that matter to them, and Rachel Crow and Christina Grimmie are both star examples,” says PETA Director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns Marta Holmberg.

This year’s award for Best peta2 Ad goes to Rachel Crow, who gave competitors a run for their money with her heartwarming “Adopt—Don’t Buy” ad featuring adorable rescued mutt Pixel.

Best Voice for Animals was nabbed by Christina Grimmie, who starred in a heartfelt video spot about why every dog deserves attention, affection, and a loving home.

We love how the stars are spreading their love for animals and we hope that during this holiday season families join in and adopt!

Christina Grimmie, The Ready Set & Others Up For Peta2’s Libby Awards!

grimmieWhat do The Ready Set and Christina Grimmie have in common? They’re not just making beautiful pop music—they’re also making the world a better place for animals and battling it out for a Libby Award from peta2, PETA’s youth division. Now in its ninth year, the Libby Awards (“Libby” is for “liberation,” as in animal liberation) includes a record 26 categories, which run the gamut from Best Use of Internet Stardom for Animals to Best Vegan Makeover to Best New Vegan Food Item. Visitors to peta2.com can cast their votes to help peta2 decide whom it should choose as the Libby Award winners and enter for a chance to win a giant Libby prize pack filled with goodies from last year’s winners, including a cookbook, personal-care products, and vegan treats.

Many of this year’s music nominees teamed up with peta2 for ad campaigns that encourage everyone to save a life by adopting a dog or cat from an animal shelter. These nominees include The Ready Set, who may take home the award for Most Animal-Friendly Band; The Voice finalist Grimmie, who faces tough competition from fellow pop singer Madison Beer in the Best Voice for Animals category; and X Factor finalist Rachel Crow, who may win the award for Best peta2 Ad.

“Today’s young people want their favorite musicians and other celebrities to care about animals as much as they do,” says PETA Director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns Marta Holmberg. “All of peta2’s nominees are winners because they’re taking a stand for their beliefs and inspiring kids to do the same.”

Voting ends on December 12 at 12 p.m. EST. Libby Award winners will be chosen by peta2—whose motto reads, “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way”—based on several factors, including vote count, and will be announced on December 16. See the full contest details here.
